Description: This is my entry for the civil rights toile contest. I wasn't going to enter this contest but... well, here it is. I decided to go with something li This is my entry for the civil rights toile contest. I wasn't going to enter this contest but... well, here it is. I decided to go with something light but pivotal in the history of early feminism. This is my ode to Amelia Bloomer and her invention of the bloomers. Where would we be today if we could not even wear what we wanted? Of course the social importance of this fashion is so much more than just that, which is why I dedicate this to Amelia!

Oh - and pictured here, along with my fairly inaccurate portrait of Ms. Bloomer herself, are a pair of bloomers, an early women's basketball team (drawn from a photograph of girls from Smith College in 1902), a young Amelia Bloomer on a bicycle (I am still blown away with myself that I drew a bicycle), and a woman wearing an early "Bloomer outfit".

sammyk

sammyk says: You know, Mona, sticking your neck out there and creating such a wonderful hand-drawn toile from scratch is a top ten feet in my book. Easy to source from other places, but to take on the challenge and draw your very own design is absolutely magnificent and worthy of great praise. Love the purple and that bike is so splendid. Go bloomer! Go Mona!

victori...

victorialasher says: I think it should have been top ten. Perhaps people just don't realize what a huge impact "bloomers" had on women's freedoms. Most people nowadays think of bloomers as underwear; but that is not what they were originally. They really were pants, as in trousers.

ceanirm...

ceanirminger says: It is totally pants that this didn't get the attention it deseves! (thank my UK friends for the very appropriate term for my displeasure.) I think this is so clever yet totally on point as a very important moment in women's rights history. Keep that amazing, quirky brain of yours churning out gems like this one, Mona!

lulakiti

lulakiti says: Aw thank you all so much! I am a little bummed that even in a contest of only 23, I couldn't squeak into the top 10 but I know it doesn't really mean anything about me as an artist or even about the merits of this design. Voting is so subjective. Really, really appreciate all of your kind words and having such good and talented friends on here! :)

francine

francine says: This is fantastic Mona - it's such a serious and challenging theme but you've managed to introduce an element of playfulness that makes this work as a textile. I didn't think it could be done! Would make great jammie material or to line an intimates drawer. Great job!

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Hurrah for bloomers! This was a great choice of topic for this week's challenge and I love your design Mona! Your illustrations are wonderful, especially the bicycle! Just think, most women only started to wear any form of drawers, pantelettes, bloomers etc towards the end of the 19th century. Now you can pay vast sums of money to wear the knickers that are almost not there at all!
